Dear Families, 

This is the communication which includes the link for our back to school night kickoff this evening at 6:30.  I’ll be speaking to you live, but please note all the teacher presentations will be recorded and uploaded for you to watch whenever it best fits your schedule.  My presentation will take about 15 minutes and those of you who need to get to town meeting at 7 should have plenty of time. 

Here’s my plan. 

1. Welcome and some comments on this year and our current context. 

2. A reminder about the surveillance testing which begins this week for students (Thank you WEF and all of you who donated to the cause – please see detailed information in this communication). 

3. Share my screen so I can show you how to access the teacher videos from our main page teacher directory. 

My presentation will be recorded and left on the main page of our website to help you if you can’t make it or need it again later. 

Be well and I’ll look forward to speaking to you tonight. 

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: Oct 28, 2020 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
